Storyline

Late in 2001, tough economic times in Buenos Aires mean that Beba, a slim, blond, and privileged divorcée, has no money to pay Dora, a doughy, nearly-silent maid who has lived with her for almost 30 years. Dora breaths in her dignity and resigns. She wants to finish work on her own house, with her less than reliable mate, Miguel. She also looks for a new job. Beba asks her ex-husband for financial help. He demurs. Can Beba adjust to new realities, find a way to pay Dora, and honor her lifetime of service, and can either make a life without the other? Does sisterhood cross class lines? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Wonderful acting--struggling with reduced circumstances
23 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Senora Beba is a 50 something (approaching 60) woman who is having to learn to live with reduced circumstances. She is the perfect upper middle class rattle brained blond who is maybe really not so rattle brained.

Dora is her live in maid of 30 years who is going to quit because Senora Beba can no longer pay her salary reliably.

Neither one want this to happen.

It is a wonderful look at life as you get older live alone and have less income.

Both characters and the film are 100% real.

This movie is a must see.
